127 pp "In 1912, the village of Cape Wolstenholme on Hudson Bay was the northernmost edge of the North American frontier.It was there during a hunting expedition that Robert Flaherty, an American-born prospector and a pioneer filmmaker, chanced to see the landing of an overcrowded, leaking, sealskin-and-whalebone vessel. This improvised contraption, kept afloat by inflated seal bladders, held an Inuit hunter named Comock, his wife, their eleven children, and two dogs. Ten years earlier, Comock and his family had crossed the Hudson Bay's ice floes in search of a fabled island rich in caribou, walruses, and seals. They found their "promised land" Mansel Island, sixty miles west of Cape Wolstenholme but lost their bearings and most of their belongings en route. Although they were the island's only human inhabitants, the family, thanks to Comock's skill as a hunter, not only survived but thrived in one of the world's harshest environments. A full decade later, they returned to tell their incredible tale. With all the skill of the great documentary filmmaker he would later become, Flaherty recorded Comock's story and retells it in the hunter's own voice. A classic of oral literature, a kind of real-life Eskimo folk tale of cunning, ingenuity, and daring, Comock was originally published to critical acclaim in 1968. This beautiful new large-format edition includes many Inuit drawings collected by Flaherty, several sections of previously omitted text, and a new epilogue by the noted anthropologist Edmund Carpenter. The book has also been enhanced by tri-tone reproductions of forty-six Flaherty photographs, images reminiscent of stills from his great silent film Nanook of the North. "
